After the Bible, Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan is still one of the world's best sellers. The Holy War, his other allegorical work, portrayed the continuous conflict between man and the devil. The city of Mansoul is attacked by Diabolus using ruse, intrigue and force. The battle is long and bitter, but through the intervention of Prince Emmanuel victory is secured, in spite of the weaknesses and failings of the inhabitants of Mansoul. This modern English version succeeds in retaining the beauty of Bunyan's style, presenting scriptural truth and telling an exciting story which will be enjoyed by young and old.
John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose. In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years.
Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City; Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners; and the most famous, The Pilgrims Progress.
After his release, he became the pastor of a church in Bedord, England and continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War; Bunyan's Visions of Heaven and Hell and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
